Is there a way to send a record's URL in an email-type Workflow rule?

I utilize Workflows heavily for sending email notifications to my users. Unfortunately, I have not been able to figure out how to send them a link in this message that will take them directly to the record’s URL. Is it possible?

I tried to set up an email template with auto-generated fields inserted into the correct places on the URL, but the {id} field is not something that can be added to an email template.

Do I have any other options? Preferably without dropping down into code?

Hi Roquefort,

You would simply use $url



That worked perfectly, thanks!
